    The Road Out of Hell

    The Wineville murders were mentioned in the film "The Changeling" and that what got me interested in learning more. Anthony Flacco's book "The Road Out of Hell: Sanford Clark and the True Story of the Wineville Murders" is an in-depth account of What Sanford Clark endured at the hands of his uncle Gordon Stewart Northcott. It is quite explicit and one must be prepared when reading this book. These murders and the treatment of Sanford are not for the faint of heart. A truly incredible non-fiction crime story.

    An interesting and sad history lesson of Brutality

    This was a good read in getting the information from a personal style of understanding the pain and suffering Sanford Clark went through. The writing on this horrible subject in criminal history is done in a matter of fact and personal way. I do feel that a lot of the book was repetitive in nature and seems to linger to long in spots. Overlooking the repetitive nature, the book is very brutal in description and very educational in the department of this sick and twisted man. This serial killer used his adult hood and his sexual depravity upon children. Truly a deranged psycho that should not be forgotten. The children that perished and lived should not be forgotten. Their memories of innocence and the ultimate destruction at the hands of a beast must be remembered. The innocent victim should never be forgotten. The Clint Eastwood movie, The Changeling pushed my interest in seeking out the truths and reality of the story about the murders of these children. I was excited to find this book. This book sheds light on the subject and all its brutality. If you liked the movie and want to learn more, then this book displays the truths of the subject and the history of the ordeal.

    For crime buffs I recommend. For the casual reader, maybe not, because it is disturbing in many of its descriptions. I do think it's a worthy book to recommend and own and display on any persons shelf that studies or enjoys reading about criminal history. It has its flaws, but one reading, can overlook the repetitive nature.
